1898 – Village Shops, Port Sunlight, Cheshire

Architect: Grayson & Ould



“The distinguishing feature beyond the notable extent of the undertaking is the picturesque and varied character of their buildings, several leading architects having been engaged by the proprietors for the preparation of the designs thus realised or about to be put in hand. One feature of this industrial homestead is that every villager desiring it can have an allotment garden — an advantage of which the majority of the tenants have availed themselves.” From The Building News, November 4 1898.
